An Invitation

Ok, it's time to stop dreaming, and start doing.

That's what I decided this morning after I made the mistake of opening Pinterest on my browser when I should have been cleaning toilets.

I have a love/hate thing going on there, do you?
I love looking at all the amazing ideas.
Love it.
But at the same time, it overwhelms me to the point that I don't do any creating of my own.
I hate that.
I hate feeling overwhelmed because I spent too much time dreaming and pinning.
My boards look great . . . but what good comes from staring at virtual stuff?

I decided that I need to stop lurking and do.

To get started, I'm making a few things for October.
And to hold myself accountable, I'm having a party.

 Linky Party   
Thursday, September 29th

Share something you've made that was inspired by Pinterest.
It can be Fall or Halloween related, or not.
But it would be fun if it was.
Just sayin.'

It would get us all in the mood for October, huh?

Get busy and get back here with pictures.

Thursday, September 29th.

P.S.  I'm going to do this on a regular basis, so come back on Thursdays and link up.

P.S.S.   Please pay a visit to this site and shop for a very good cause.  You'll be glad you did.

love this linky party!

putting on a wedding reception in our backyard this weekend, so my sister-in-law and i have been busy looking through pinterest and finding ideas!

i just started "pinning" this weekend, so not everything that we are doing is up, but we have found so much inspiration!

sounds like a fun party friend, hoping i will be able to catch this weeks, but i might have to shoot for round 2 with a crazy week that i have!

Oh I can't wait for this! I got married last week, and I planned everything and DIY everything for our vintage carnival themed event. Many of the projects were pinterest inspired - can't wait to link them up!
